I'm glad to remember I attended this show! The theater was very small and intimate, easily the smallest venue for any Dead show in my experience. Memory fades but gosh, maybe only 1,000 seats or so(?). It was a high just to score tix and it was even moreso to be there. I remember being particularly swept up and blown away during Dancing in the Street, as it may have been the first time I'd heard the band play it.(so, if you were there too, I was that 17 year old kid going nuts during DITS!) Listening again now is great fun and, boy, I could hardly hand-pick a better set list! The band sounds real light and tight. I don't mean to complain but, sadly, I have to agree with a previous reviewer about the recording itself--it seems to be just a smidge too fast. But thanks just the same to the taper--you have served posterity well!

This sounds great but seems a bit fast to me.

what can i say, i think all of these orpheum shows are awesome, I love the quality of these AUDs and this is one of my favorite H>S>Fs. Some may say the sound sucks but I believe the glass is so totally half full here. First official SF show since 10/20/74 (8/13/75 was invite only)
Don't forget the Shrine shows in October
